Recorded at CAPA Airline Leader Summit Americas 2024, 9-10 May 2024

Region Focus: Feeding into the South America market

The North America to South America market has been one of the great airline success stories of recent history. The strength of the market has prompted a fresh wave of airlines to connect new markets in North America to South American sun destinations. Arajet and Sun Country have launched or are launching flights to Canada. LCCs/ULCCs have typically avoided Canada since airport costs are high.

  • What has changed in the market that these airlines now think it can work?
  • Is the recovery of the US/South America market at its peak?
  • What opportunities still exist for this important market?
